Somehow I was no longer maintaining, but expanding. I found myself eating not one small piece of chocolate, but the whole bar and not one small piece of coffee ring, but many.

What happened? I stopped measuring and recording my food. I eyeballed servings and then just kept eating.

I got too busy for exercise.

Finally the truth hit, I no longer fit the size I was Dec. 1st!

Feb. 8 update: I fit my clothes again, and I am in a smaller size than I was Dec. 1.

My health is good and I am enjoying exercising. Will try to add other kinds of exercises now that my knee is stronger.

Hi Mara, just stopping by to check in on you, hope all is going well. Isn't this weather the "Bomb"?!?! I'm LOVING these warmer temperatures, it's so nice to get outside every day! I got the yard mowed yesterday, it was really needing it. I usually cut the grass on Fridays, but I didn't cut it last week because I wanted it to be alittle higher on Sunday, for the Easter egg hunt. The grandkids were here and we always have an egg hunt for them. We don't have a lot of places out there to hide eggs, so we have to hide a bunch of them in the grass. Anyway, by yesterday, it was looking real shabby, so I figured I'd better get it cut because we're expecting rain today.
Hope you have a terrific Thursday, and good luck with your goals today, I'M ROOTIN' FOR YOU ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! It IS hard to turn away foods that the hubby brings home. We just have to keep one foot in front of the other and try our best. Some days will be a success, other days will be learning experiences! YOU CAN DO THIS!
